Nov. 26 was the first anniversary of the kidnapping of my fellow volunteers with Christian Peacemaker Teams: Harmeet Sooden, Jim Loney, Norman Kember, and Tom Fox. So many memories come flooding back. The thing that I remember most of this past year–a year like no other in my life–has been the sustaining power of the thoughts and prayers of so many people. I know you have expressed your concerns for people around the world who are suffering from the chaos and horror of war. I know they will be feeling that sustaining power as well. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
